I solemnly swear or affirm, by whatever I hold 

most sacred: 

That I will be loyal to the profession of medicine 
and just and generous to its members; 




ad my life and practi 



That I will lead my life and practice my art in 
uprightness and in honor; 

That into whatsoever house I shall enter, it shall 
be for the good of the sick to the utmost of my 

power, holding myself far aloof from wrong, 
from corruption, from the tempting of others to 

vice; 

That I will exercise my art solely for the benefit 

of my patients, and will give no drug, or perform 

no operation, for a criminal purpose, even if 

solicited, far less suggest it; 

That whatsoever I shall see or hear of the lives 

of patients which is not fitting to be spoken, I will 

keep inviolably secret. 

These things I do swear or affirm.

Welcome 

rexel N 



D» 



» of Mtmcm 



I hether it was accepting us off the waitlist the day 

before orientation, or granting an extra travel day 
during our Sub-/ for that last residency interview, 
the Drexel University College of Medicine's faculty 
and staff have provided continuous support and 
encouragement throughout the past four years. The 
Deans have provided endless guidance, the faculty 
has taught us the foundations and principals of 
medicine, and our attending physicians have 
emulated the art of patient interaction and care. All 
their hard work has not gone unnoticed, and we, as 
students, owe them everything for making these four 
years great. Thank you to all the amazing teachers 
and good friends we have made along the way as 
we, the Class of 2010, have grown from students 
into physicians.

•inally, it's our time to rule the school. But first, we 
must complete our ERAS application, take the 
USMLE Step 2 CK and CS, pass our medicine sub- 
internship and neurology shelf, and fill out one last 
survey. Then, we can coast for the rest of the year and 
take that Spanish rotation in Costa Rica or vacation 
in the Dominican Republic, Africa, or California 
before we cross our fingers and pray to a god during 
Match Day. If only we could stay seniors for another 
one or two years....

Someone once told me "You cannot be really great at your work, if your work is all you are." 
To that, I must thank all of the people who have made me who I am today. 

First and foremost, to my family for knowing that this was the road 1 was destined to take 
;ven before I had fully realized it myself but still allowed me to find my own way 
lonetheless. I am so lucky to have your unconditional love and support as reminders of what 
s most important in life. 

To my girlies, thank you for helping me laugh my way through all the ups and downs over 
he past four years. I am so glad that the infamous time "before we knew each other" was 
jrief, because nothing about med school would have been the same without the three of you 
>y my side. 

To all my friends both near and far who supported me through this crazy life even without 
cnowing what med students do all day, 1 will always appreciate your encouraging words and 
'aith in me. 

To my Drexel peers, it is hard to believe that this day has finally come. I am so grateful for 
he amazing friendships I have gained during even the most stressful of times and under the 
Tiost unlikely of circumstances. Each one will remain dear to me for many years to come. I 
vish you all the best of luck in everything that you do.

I had an awesome time in Philadelphia. If I could do it over, I would 
totally do the whole "East Coast experience" again. ..minus the med 
school thing. Haha. Somebody asked me what the biggest thing that 
I would miss about Philly, and I'm going to miss all of the people 
that I met. Good peeps = good times. It's crazy to think that we're 
doctors now. It feels like we just started last year. The four years at 
Drexel has gone by so fast. But I'm hella looking forward to starting 
residency. If anybody's going to visit California, holla!

brother and sister for their company and many visits to 
Philadelphia, and for their relentless support. And thank you 
especially to my husband Parth for walking through this long 
journey with me, for keeping me sane through late nights of 
tudying and hard days on rotations. I could never have done this 
without you. I am so lucky to have found my lifelong partner at

Thank you. Mom and Dad, Michelle. Effie. Paul, Helen, Helen and Diego. 
Thank you tor believing in me. 

And Death Shall Have No Dominion 

And death shall have no dominion. Dead mean naked they shall be one 

With the man in the wind and the west moon; When their bones are picked clean and the 

clean bones gone. 

They shall have stars at elbow and foot: Though they go mad the) shall be sane. 

Though they sink through the sea they shall rise again; Though lovers be lost love shall not: 

And death shall have no dominion. 

And death shall have no dominion. Under the windings of the sea 
They lying long shall not die windily; Twisting on racks when sinews give way, 
Strapped to a wheel, yet they shall not break; Faith in their hands shall snap in two. 
And the unicorn evils run them through: Split all ends up they shan't crack; 
And death shall have no dominion. 

And death shall have no dominion. No more may gulls cry at their ears 

Or waves break loud on the seashores; Where blew a flower may a flower no more 

Lift its head to the blows of the rain; Though they be mad and dead as nails. 

Heads of the characters hammer through daisies; Break in the sun till the sun breaks down. 

And death shall have no dominion.

Dearest family and friends. 

I am so happy to finally be done with school! Although this has been a 
long and hard journey it was well worth it. I remember those many hours 
studying with J. Ro and Christof just trying to survive the next test. I will 
never forget how Justin stabbed me in anatomy and when my cell fell from 
the table in a cup of water on the floor at Buck's county coffee. Going to 
D.R. was so much fun too! I feel so fortunate to have made good friends 
and to have accomplished everything I wanted to in medical school. 2010 
has certainly been the best year ever because I am graduating, getting 
married, and starting my first choice internship all in the same year. Of; 
course, I would have never made it this far if it weren't for my parentals, 
Juan and Luisa, who I love very much. I also want to thank my sweettart 
Ramin who has made these last three years the best of my life. Good luck 
to everyone and I wish you all the happiness and prosperity in the coming 
years.

didn't hear from me for weeks: You kept sending mail, love, and banana 
bread, and only asked for an occasional proof of life. I love you, my 
cheeseheads! 

To the rest of my WI fan club: thanks for understanding that when I came 
home for break, all I wanted to do was sleep. I hope I can make it up to 
you! 

To my girls: CONGRATULATIONS, doctors! It's all downhill from here! 
You have been my home away from home, my fun times, and the best 
girlfriends anyone could ask for. 

To M, who has been my strength, my understanding, and my confidence: 
You make everything easier and that is the greatest gift. Congratulations to

time off and availability. To all of my fellow classmates/friends that

It was undoubtedly the best decision I have made,

Mom when I struggled and got down on myself, you were always 
there to listen and lift my confidence. You never stopped believing 
jin me or my ability to succeed. Dad - though the words have been 
few, you have always supported anything of I have ever dreamed of 
doing without hesitation. Caren I wish I could have been as 
successful in medical school as you are in school right now. We 
will always share a special bond despite distance. Jeff & Sharon

you always made me feel special because you were so proud. I miss

believe in myself even when I felt hopeless. You have truly kept me 
balanced. I love you for being who you are and for loving me for 
who I am.

My journey thru medical school has been life-altering. I have matured, met 
the person I am ready to spend the rest of my life with, and I have met 
wonderful and lifelong friends. None of which could not have been 
possible without my family. Their encouragement and belief in me gave 
me the confidence to move cross-country to make my dreams come true. 
To my step-father Rick, you have always been the quiet strength in my life 
and the one I can count on. To my brother Caden, leaving you at the age of 
4 was incredibly hard and I thank you for taking our separation with a 
smile and optimism for the future. To my mother, you have been the 
example that has inspired me, the person to push me when I needed it, and 
the confidant who always dispensed advice with insight and honesty. 
Lastly, to the love of my life... Jamen, I can't imagine my future without 
you in it. You are truly my best friend and soul mate, I wasn't even sure I 
believed in that until I met you. Carol, Greg, and Casey thanks for being 
the best future in-laws, I appreciate your support of our relationship. Uncle 
Richard & Aunt Michelle thanks for your support and grandma Reiko you 
are such an inspiration. My future looks bright thanks to all of you.

The LORD is merciful and gracious,

He does not deal with us according to our sins, 

nor repay us according to our iniquities. 
For as high as the heavens are above the earth, 

so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; 
as far as the east is from the west, 

so far does he remove our transgressions from us.

ven more so), and there were days when His strength was all that I had to rely on. 
"hank you also to my family for all of your support, encouragement and prayers. 
lefinitely could not have gotten through this without you : ) Dad, thanks for always 
eing a great example of what it looks like to work hard and be persistent. Mom, 
ou always made coming home on the weekends fun, and I'm not sure I would still 
lave my sanity if it weren't for our daily chats and me getting the chance to vent to 
omeone! Eric, thank you for being so understanding and patient on all of those 
razy weekends spent studying, rather than out having fun. I love you and can't wait 
,) start my life with you! Krista and Kelsey, thank you for being such wonderful and 
upportive sisters... feel free to bring my future nieces and nephews in for a quick 
heck-up anytime : ) Ray and Jordan, thanks for all the fun weekends spent at home

artoon world! Emma, thanks for being a great med school buddy, and best of luck 
ext year at Jefferson :) Lastly, thank you to all of the dedicated teachers at Drexel. 
wen though residency will undoubtedly be a challenging experience, I am 
onfident that I'm being sent out into "the real world" with all of the tools I will 
eed to start training for a successful career in medicine. Best of luck and

Mom and Dad, I don't think I will ever be able to thank you enough for all 
you have done for me. I would never have gotten this far in life without 
your support, guidance, and love. Harman, you are the funniest person I 
know. You have such a good heart and it's going to take you very far in 
life. To the friends I have made in med school, I am so happy I met you all 
and I know we will keep in touch. Nothing will ever replace the time we 
spent together during one of the most challenging and rewarding times in 
our lives. To the friends I have had for the last 7 years, you know who you 
are. I can't believe we came this far together. The last 7 years went by so 
fast, and we have all grown up so much. We saw each other transition from 
kids at home to young adults getting our first tastes of freedom in college. 
In med school we watched each other grow and mature into the people we 
are now. I hope we will continue to be friends during the next phases of 
our lives. Finally I'd like to thank my fiance for all the support he's given 
me. You have taught me so much and I can't wait to start our lives 
together. I love you all.

To my parents, MaryAnn and Richard, you have given me a 
powerful gift of unconditional love and guidance wrapped with 
confidence. This has allowed me to succeed in the completion o, 
medical school and will be of immeasurable help in my future 
endeavors. Thank you! To my sisters, Katelyn and Jamie, your 
constant badgering has kept me sharp on my toes and will be a 
great gift to deal with stressful overnight calls. Thanks girls! 
would also like to thank the Feldstein and Montanero families who 
are always in my mind and my heart. Lastly, this dedication would 
not be complete without thanking Argjenta who is always at my 
side, dealing with my stress, even when she would rather be on the 
European Riviera. Thank you Argjenta for your ever loving 
motivation and support!

Now that I am finally here, it is rightfully so that I take this 

moment to thank those that have made it possible for me to be 

where I am today. My parents have shown me that hard work will 

always lead to success, to shoot for the stars and their continued 

selflessness to catch me when I fall. To my sons Brandon and 

Jaeden, who give me joy and unconditional love. You two are my 

breath of fresh air and know I love you two very much. My 

boyfriend Patrick, listening to me complain over exams and 

rotations. It is you who have been my rock and my best friend that 

I have found the strength to continue even when I couldn't see the 

finish line. To my siblings, who took it upon themselves to care 

for my sons by providing a loving environment for growth and 

nourishment. Lastly, to ALL my friends and relatives for their' 

support and words of encouragement. So from the bottom of my 

heart, I thank each and every one of you for your love, support 

and the positive impact you have had in my life.

of you. Whether it's listening to me complain or just hanging out 
and having a good time, I cherished every moment. I will always 
take a moment whenever I play football to reminisce about the times 
that we played. 

To my parents and family: Thank you for being there for me even 
though I was extremely busy and never had a lot of time to chat. 

To my mentor Dr. Edmunds: Thank you for showing me the light. 
It's been a long journey but I finally found what I truly love to do 
and I could not have done so without your guidance.

time to our friendships- Ward, Brit, Laur, Jessie, Mon, 

Kim. Our calls were my saving graces. Lastly, I'm 
grateful for the friends I made these last 4yrs. Our trials 

& tribulations, our humor, our nights at Tavern & 
Drinkers, our ice cream dates, our shopping sprees, our 

chick flicks- all let me catch my breath when I was 

drowning. Whatever awaits us, near & far, I will always 

be fond of these memories.

Thank you to all of my family and friends who

the most fun to be around when I'm sleep deprived and 

stressed, but I appreciate those of you who stuck by me 

anyway. It's hard to believe that we're all moving on to 

become doctors. As the great Ferris Bueller once said: 

"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop to look around 

once in a while you could miss it." So stop and look 

around a little, we earned it.

Everything I have ever achieved is credited to you, for you laid 
he foundation. You are the greatest family one could ask for, and 
I hope to make you as proud of me as I am of you. 

Thank you to my best friends, my constant companions during 
both the highs and the lows. Your friendships made even the 
most brutal moments bearable. You are more than friends, you 
lire my family.

To my family: Thank you for your love and support, for planning- 
gatherings with my schedule in mind, and for accepting my 
absence when I could not get away. I love spending time with 
Joey, and watching Ben take on everything in his path. Mom and i 
Dad, you have been great listeners and friends. I am grateful for I 
the time we have spent together. I could not have been as 
successful as I am without all of you. 

To Brian: Sometimes I cannot find the words to tell you how I 
feel. I believed when I married you that together we could 
overcome any challenge. There were times when my stress 
seemed to fill our home, but you could always rein me in and 
calm me down. You have this incredible skill of balancing our 
lives. I am fortunate to have you with me, and am excited for ourjj 
future together. I love you Red Beard.

so much in the midst of the studying, sleep deprivation,

I would like to thank: 

My mom and dad for giving me the ability to spring right up, even after 

I've fallen so hard; 

My HI bro and sis for your unspoken yet blanketingly tangible confidence 

in my ability to succeed; 

My roommate for helping me gracefully enjoy a 25 handicap; 

My favorite attending physician for somehow constantly making my aim 

feel true; 

My Saturday morning warriors for allowing me to release the green fire 

from the proverbial furnace; 

My favorite dinner buddies for the near-weekly Sang Kee duck and the 

once-in-a-lifetime Vetri indulgence; 

All the rest of my beloved for seeing and loving me as I truly am. 

I am certainly blessed and rich in life. I hope someday I can give back as 
much as I have received as a son, brother, friend, and doctor. Impossible'

I want to thank my parents Luis y Liliana and my sister Denise for being there 
every step of the way, no matter what else was going on in their life. Muchas 
gracias, no lo podria haber logrado sin ustedes! Los quiero muchisimo. It's beer 
long journey and I am glad good things are happening this year. 

I wish the best to all of the friends I made in medical school. I moved to this citi 
expecting to meet nice school friends at best and ended up meeting people that 
will be my best friends for life. I am sad that we are all going our separate ways 
but confident that everyone will do great no matter what path we follow. I will 
miss all of you so let's keep in touch! 

Patrick, I love you and want to thank you for helping me get through every sing 
obstacle and for sharing all the amazing times I've experienced over the last 3 
years. 



Gracias to all the other people that either inspired me or helped me get to or 
through medical school, starting from my high school teacher, to my advisors at 
UF, my non med school friends that keep me sane, and to all the wonderful facu 
at Drexel and St. Christopher's that helped me finalize my dream.

I would like to thank everyone in my life that has made my 
graduation from medical school possible. First, I would like to 
thank God for giving me the inspiration to pursue medicine as a 
career. Next I must thank all of my family members especially my| 
parents and my sister Millie who helped and supported me since I ] 
was a child. The love and unfettering support of my parents and 
Millie made this day possible. I also owe a lot of this day to my wij 
whom I met during my medical school days at Drexel. My wife 
Nisha has been a great companion during our medical school yearsf 
and I can easily say the best thing to happen to me during medical I 
school was meeting and ultimately marrying Nisha during my time 
at Drexel. I must also thank members of my extended family that I 
have supported me and made me who I am. Lastly, I would like to! 
thank my wife's family for giving me love and support during my 
years in school. 

Good luck to members of the class of 2010!!!

Ifelt an instant connection to DUCOM when I interviewed here not 
lb long ago. I could tell that it was a school that appreciated the 
pique individuals of the applicant pool. After the initial 
hcomfortable adjustment period, I quickly realized what a true gem I 
id been blessed with. Interacting with so many people from teachers 
1 students who were sincere in their desire to help people has been 
bspiring and motivating on a daily basis. 

jo my parents who had an unnervingly steadfast belief in me, a belief 
iat I didn't always share. It has finally paid off. 

Ion Kotlar, study buddy extraordinaire. I didn't realize how similar 
e were until we made our pact over a La Chouffe at O'neil's. Your 
>Mtive influence on my career and life are indescribable. I send 
lany blessings to you and your family in your new winter paradise. 

iO all the other DUCOMers I am forever indebted for your support, 
jmor, and inspiration.

Thank you God for seeing me through. I don't know what the futui 

holds, but You hold the future so I don't have to worry. 

To my family: I wanted to be a traveling singer, piano player, 

doctor. . . Most of those other things fell by the wayside, but the 

desire to be a doctor didn't. I'm not sure if any of us knew what I 

was getting into, but we made it through! Thanks for sticking with 

me through all the adventures of med school!! Love you! 

To my friends: You are all amazing and I'm so happy to have met 

you! You made this experience so much better just by being here, i 

You'll all be great doctors and I'll see most of you in Cali in a few 

years! 

To Drew: Med school has been crazy, but we found each other, and 

couldn't be happier. Thanks for your support, patience, and all the jl 

fun you added to my life. God has a plan for us, and it's gonna be ;, 

good one. Love you! ! ! Also, thanks to your family for welcoming 

me in. . .I'm very excited for the future!

hank you everyone in my life and to Drexel University College of Medicine, as 
ou have all played a role in helping me reach my goal of obtaining my medical 
egree. Some of my favorite lines in the past four years: 

I've learned that 1 still have a lot to learn.- Maya Angelou 
Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right, 
jrget about the ones who don't. Believe everything happens for a reason. 
lobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it. Great 
>ve and great achievements involve great risk. 

Life is never too busy for a good cry, a conversation, and a comforting hug. 
When 1 stand before God at the end of my life, I hope that I would have not a 
ingle bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me."

made this entire process so memorable and have become

I feel tremendous gratitude (and relief) for having made it through] 
medical school and a year of service abroad during these last five 
years. This task could not have been accomplished without the 
constant support and occasional emotional resuscitation by friends 
and family members. Much like this time five years ago, I'm off to 
new city (Indianapolis), except this time it's to become expert at 
removing peas from kids' noses. Best wishes to all of those dear 
servants of humanity in the class of 2010 who are learning to remo: 
various substances from the orifices of their choosing.

coming to an end. I am so thankful to all the family, friends and

have guided me along the way. Mom and Dad, I definitely couldn

achieve will always be because of you.

journey, and know that the unique bond of medical school will kee 
us in each other's lives for years to come. Thank you for the 
laughter, memories, and friendships that will truly last a lifetime.

I still remember walking into Aud A for our first exam and hearing Dr. Ferr 
say, "The national board sets a pace of 1.2 minutes per question..." -her voice 
trailed off as I thought to myself, "What in the world have I gotten into?" Four 
years later I'm still not sure I know the answer to that but it's definitely been 
without question the most interesting four years of my life. Actually, I think w 
all know that "interesting" would be an understatement. The last 4 years have 
been a complete blur and after the countless sleepless nights, empty coffee cup! 
and burned out highlighters, we can finally say that we are doctors. 
Congratulations to everyone! 

For my friends: thanks for making mnemonics interesting, but more 
importantly, I think it's safe to say that we've been through it all together. Let' 
be honest -there's probably a few things that I would change, but if I had do it 
again, I wouldn't have gone through it all with anyone else except you guys. If 
haven't said it yet, thank you for being there, being supportive, and being 
yourselves through all the madness. . .thanks for everything. You made these 
exciting and I will never forget you all for that. I know we still have tons of grel 
times together still to come, so before you get all teary eyed and emo, remembel 
one last thing: get sooped!

am so blessed to have you all in my life. Biff your the bestest! 

To my friends - Our long journey of schooling has finally ended, but as we part 
our separate ways I hope that our friendship stays the same. 

Last but most importantly to my husband - Noor you have held my hand from 

practically the very beginning of medical school and have never let it go. You 

have made the past few years the best of my life, and I am the luckiest girl to 

always have you by my side. I love you bubbs!

Hey Class of 20 10! 

These last four years have been amazing and I want to thank all of you for thj 
fantastic times I have had. From first starting out and helping each other throug 
the seemingly never-ending slew of tests, and then moving on to our clinical ye*] 
where we had to support one another with residents, attendings, and patients, ou( 
time together has been very memorable! 

I want to thank our amazing professors! Without your time and patience m 
would not be the doctors we are today. You provided us with a wealth of 
knowledge that will enable us to be great physicians and for that I thank you. 

Thank you also to Kate, Jane, Dianna, Sara, Meg, Caroline and Michelle. Y 
ladies have made my years here so much better. I know I could always rely on 
you girls for anything, I can't wait to hear about all of your adventures in 
residency. 

The last and most important thank yous go to my family. To Davidson, Mon 
Dad and Craig: I love you all so much, I could have never made it here without 
your constant encouragement and unfailing belief that I would one day reach thi 
moment. 

Good luck Class of 2010, you will all make excellent physicians and I am so 
lucky to have worked with you. I can't wait to work with some of you in the 
future.

My sister - Rashmee, thank you for being there at all times of the day especially!

make my life easier. Your strength and encouragement helped me reach the starj

I want to give a special thanks to my husband, Nick, who has been so incredibly 

supportive of my dream of going to medical school ever since we ate lunch that 

day at Canyon Cafe. I couldn't have done it without you. 

Thanks to Aiden, and even Mia though she doesn't know any differently yet, for 

being such great kids and putting up with all the times you missed me because I 

was at school or studying. 

Thanks to all of my family, both Shaw and Tustison alike, for your support and 

encouragement through the years. 

Thanks to my amazing group of friends who at times pulled me through first and 

second year classes, and then drove me around, reminded me when we had 

rounds, and dragged me through rotations and studying for shelves. I truly never 

would have gotten through without you guys. 

1 also have to include a little note to my peeps in student affairs who just made m 

life better all along the way. I am so grateful to have met, known, loved, and 

worked with all of you. 

So many of you have made a difference in my life, and I will forever be changed 

because I knew you. Thank you all!

I never would have thought that attending medical school would 
have brought about such change in me. I truly believe that I have 
found my calling, in a place that has enabled me to blossom as I 
never thought I would. 

I would like to thank my family for supporting me, although they 
were on the other side of the country. I could not have come this fa 
without them. I would also like to thank my fellow students for 
becoming my friends and nurturing me into an eager new physiciar 
and caring person. And to Anthony, your love has given me a sense 
of belonging and a new family so far away from my own. I am so 
glad that we were brought together and I am looking forward to 
many years to come.

To my Drexel friends- These past four years have been amazing! 

We have done everything from guided battlefield tours, to

The past four years have been some of the most difficult and yet 
[rewarding in my life. I want to thank my mom, dad, sister, and cousins for their 
endless support and encouragement. Thank you for bringing me food until I 
learned to cook, for bleaching the germs out of my white coat, and for giving 
me perspective during difficult times. You were all instrumental in helping me 
finally answer the question, "What do you want to be when you grow up" and 
actually making it happen. 

I want to thank my friends for going through every hoop and obstacle with me. 
For those outside of medicine, thank you for being my link to reality. Past 
graduates, thank you for letting me know that each time I felt the world was 
going to end it would always keep spinning. To my classmates, thank you for 
the late night coffee breaks and other shenanigans. Thank you for letting me 
monopolize the microphone during sessions of guitar hero. Thank you for 
forcing me on trips to New York during thunderstorms when I only had a single 
\\ eekend off. Ultimately, thank you for making my medical school journey 
worthwhile and something to remember. Congratulations class of 2010!

V 



n between studying for exams, coffee trips, and 
on-call nights during clinical rotations, we 
managed to have a lot of fun together as a class. 
We partied the night away at welcome back 
dances, got all dressed up for halloweens, over- 
celebrated at class socials, and strutted our stuff 
on stage at P ABC's. We certainly knew how to 
work hard and play harder. The photos in the next 
pages captured many smiles and laughs, an 
occasional tear, as well as an embarrassing dance 
move or two, but one thing is for certain, these 
candid class photographs captured a lot of 
fantastic memories. ..

V Wedl 



only one week remaining before the end of 
edical school, the culmination of years, if not 
^decades, of hard work and dedication is bittersweet to 
say the least. Through four years of medical school, 
we all faced struggles that could not have been 
overcome without the friends and colleagues that we 
made along the way. Though graduation week is a 
time to rejoice in our accomplishments, it is also a 
time to thank our families for their support, and 
remind our friends that this journey could only have 
been accomplished with them at our side.

Words of Congratulations 




uri 
I hy/e 



ur\ng our long road to graduation, many people 
h<Je influenced our lives; friends, family, professors, 
and mentors. Commencement is an important day for 
us, serving as the culmination of many years of 
schooling, hard work, and late nights cramming. 
However graduation also serves as a shining moment 
for everyone else who supported us along our journey 
to M.D. In these next few pages, you will find words 
of congratulations, memories from childhood, as well 
as words of inspiration and advice, but most 
importantly, these pages are a chance for friends and 
family to say "We are so proud of you... "

Dear Marielle, 

"Virtue is the center of all the felicities... 
Virtue is the sun of the microcosm, and has 
for hemisphere a good conscience. She is 
so beautiful she finds favor with both God 
and man..." 

You have always amazed us Marielle with 
your tenacity to achieve, with your desire to 
see a better world, and your willingness to 
put comforts aside in trying to make it so. 
There is devotion in your eyes and yearning 
for humanity to do better in caring for the 
weakest among us. 

It is, in a word, your virtue that we see you 
striving for. And you are special with that 
beauty blooming in your soul. 

Love, 

Dad, Mom, Kristen, and Jonathan 




Clif, 

Years ago a physician told me that when you are 
a doctor, you have a chance to touch many 
people in life, some for more and some for less. 
It is a thought that gives you pause but we know 
they will be better for knowing you since you are a 
wonderful person. 

-Mom, Dad, Jenny
